have an opinion, you better back it up. >>eliot spitzer takes on politics. >>science and republicans do not mix. >>now it's your turn at the only online forum with a direct line to eliot spitzer. >>join the debate now. >> eliot: as president obama opens up a significant lead over mitt romney, democratic senators are being pulled along with him especially in races featuring far right tea party republicans. most dplairing example where democrat joe donnelly has pulled ahead of richard mourdock. republicans have held the seat since 1977. it was-mile-per-hour -- mourdock who won by claiming the tea party mantle and attacking louver as a republican who would compromise but now that he's fallen behind his democratic opponent,-mile-per-hour dock is trying to step away from the tea party and court the moderate vote. let's bring in politico's national political reporter, david catanese. >> good to be with you eliot. >> eliot: it is a great interest. the senate being hugely important. the white house is something we have -- we know where that's
